History

Godzilla: The Series

"Bird of Paradise"

Quetzalcoatl was discovered in the southern point of Mexico and at first, only attacked small villages for material in order to build a nest. H.E.A.T went down to Mexico to investigate and soon met Lawrence Cohen, the man who originally discovered the giant bird. While traveling up the side of an old ruin, the group was attacked by Quetzalcoatl. Luckily, Monique was able to fend the creature off by making a small eruption come from the ground after firing her gun into one of the pockets of lava. Once again, Quetzalcoatl attacked while the group searched for her. The tranquilizers fired failed to penetrate her body and a new plan of using deadly scorpion venom was thought of.

Quetzalcoatl moved on to attack another town and began to tear the place to shreds by using her massive talons. Nick fired the venom shot, but missed, and Quetzalcoatl snatched up Elsie in her claws. The creature took Elsie back to her nest, where she would act as food for the bird's hatchlings.

While climbing up the side of the mountain to save Elsie, the group was once again attacked by Quetzalcoatl. N.I.G.E.L. was sent up to signal Godzilla, and just after sending the signal, the robot was destroyed by the bird. Before Quetzalcoatl could kill the team, Godzilla arrived to fight. After saving Elsie from the baby creatures, Cohen and Elsie were saved by the other members of H.E.A.T. Soon afterwards, Godzilla rammed Quetzalcoatl into her nest and began using his atomic breath on the rock walls, causing a rockslide. The land beneath the nest began to give way and Quetzalcoatl, along with her babies, was sent into the stream of lava beneath, never to be seen again.

Monsterverse

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Awakened by King Ghidorah's call, Quetzalcoatl began attacking humanity under the Titan's direction, moments after escaping Monarch Outpost 57 in Machu Picchu, Peru. It was later pacified when Madison Russell activated the Orca at Fenway Park.

Abilities

Flight

Quetzalcoatl has massive wings which make her capable of flight; however, at what speed she can move is unknown.

Fire breath

The adult Quetzalcoatl can emit a deadly stream of fire and fireballs from her mouth which takes the form of a stream of flame surrounded by green static.

Silicon armor

Quetzalcoatl's scales have a molecular composition similar to silicon, forming a silicate barrier around her body, and can withstand temperatures up to 2,000°F, the same temperature as lava. It can also protect her from conventional weaponry and a blast of Godzilla's atomic breath.

Reproduction

Quetzalcoatl can lay up to three eggs at a time.

Agility

Quetzalcoatl's hatchlings are capable of running at high speeds.

Weaknesses

After some boulders fell onto Quetzalcoatl, making both her and her offspring plummet into the volcano, Godzilla blasted the rock walls; the rockslide that followed effectively sealed the monsters in the volcano.

Tabletop games

Quetzalcoatl is one of the country-specific promo monsters for King of Tokyo and the King of New York spin-off. While the game features several original monsters inspired by giant monster media, it also features creatures from mythologies, folklore, literature, and movies, with King Kong being one of them. Quetzalcoatl's appearance follows its traditional depiction as a feathered serpent.
